Framed by a Moorish arch (or is it just a Moorish-looking arch?), a blue-green Islamic minaret (or does it just look like a minaret?) rises above tall trees in a city with about 1.5 million residents.

But maybe none of that matters. What city are we looking at, and when did this tower go up? Cairo; 10th century Esfahan, Iran; 18th century Las Vegas; 21st century Granada, Spain; 11th century Tijuana; 20th century Tijuana is the right answer.
